Miscellaneous Thoughts

Men’s actions are determined by their ideas and not vice versa as fanatical Marxists fondly hope and obstreperously assert. — Sirdar Kapur Singh

Socialists are impressive verbal champions of freedom, but their actions destroy freedom.
- Sirdar Kapur Singh (Social implications of Sikhism)

Dictatorship without popular support, without an independent legal system and without free criticism would seem to be a permanent feature and not a passing phase of the communist society.

- Sirdar Kapur Singh (Social implications of Sikhism).

On Gurbani

"Guru Granth Sahib, that the Sikhs revere as the visible symbol and form of the Light and the Vehicle of the Grace of God, accessible to man in the form of the Guru’s Word and Testament. This Sikh doctrine and faith foretaught by five centuries, the latest modern development in European religious thought and theological dogmatics (Karl Barth, 1886-1968) that recognises distinction between the Word and a religion by accepting that while the former is God’s self-revelation to man, the latter is the product of human culture and aspirations and is not to be identified with saving revelation, for, salvation can come only from God and not from man."
